Over -promotional[edit]

I flagged the article as over-promotional in this edit. I read the article and see a number of issues. See also What Wikipedia is not, especially WP:NOTPROMOTION. Issues include

  • Many of the facts stated seem to be positive
  • The external links section includes links to social media - see External links
  • Some of the references are self-promotional e.g. moshimag.com - see also WP:CITE

Mind Candy has now entered the mobile and tablet space with the the introduction of Moshi Monsters Village[5] [6] which has been downloaded 250,000 times and has received over 12,500 reviews.[7] In the first two months of 2014 Mind Candy also released apps Talking Poppet and Moshi Karts[8] [9]

I've added the content with some trims (for example of the leading bit cited to a press release) and did some trims of promotional content, such as the dedicated Awards section. I agree with the user above that the article still has a promotional tone, but I don't have any specific advice on how to make it more neutral. CorporateM (Talk) 03:54, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
